Kevill Road Waterfall isn’t a huge waterfall, more of a cascade, but it’s worth the detour off the main road, especially after heavy rainfall.

This wide waterfall is fed by Margaret River and flows over rocks to a pool at the bottom.

How to find Kevill Road Waterfall

From Bussell Highway in Margaret River town, take Walcliffe Road then turn right onto Kevill Road. As you drive along, look for kangaroos lazing in the grass. There are loads of them. Drive slow as one was in the middle of the road and wasn’t in a rush to move!

Opposite Waterfall Cottages, there’s a gravel bay where you can park – look for the green water tank on the right.

From the parking area, a dirt track leads down to the river and the waterfall. It’s an easy short walk but the ground is uneven so take care.

Best Time to Visit Kevill Road Waterfall

The best time to visit Kevill Road Waterfall is during winter or early spring. This is when the region receives heavy rainfall, causing the waterfall to cascade.

If you visit at other times of the year, you should be able to jump across the river as the flow is reduced to a small stream.

  • Drive slowly as there may be kangaroos on the side of Kevill Rd and on the road – they are more active around dawn and dusk
  • Wear closed-in shoes – rocks may be slippery and there is the possibility of snakes in the area
